Might -- acres of former CIA covert operations officer and president diligence LLC that's a global intelligence security form nice to see Mike and good morning good morning -- Catherine Herridge was in -- December for folks in Washington over the weekend.
One analyst considers this videotape this message that came out the most significant since 9/11 in terms of a video that Hubble would is that how -- you.
Take them down and I think part of it is Sid did that they're -- of Reading it.
A little bit to finally I mean I think some people are saying this is very important because.
Here you have -- on the dot.
Otherwise known as.
As omni American on the united you know -- young American came out of California.
And he's he's been our most wanted list for some time.
But he's in this video praising.
And major has -- and her son is still alive.
It's I think they're they're trying to read into this is somehow al-Qaeda is saying well you know you don't have to be a martyr.
Our goals Wednesday except the first time that al-Qaeda has delivered that message they go on a smaller scale you don't need to kill yourself to be effective.
I mean look at this guy in Texas that's basically what he's saying -- I mean you know it.
Al qaeda's message basically -- reach out and kill infidels attack the west.
How you do it you know and it has is evolved in morphed and changed over the years based on on how much pressure the feeling with the resources may be.
I wouldn't read too much into this this has been very consistent this latest video from -- -- -- consistent with his other videos they use him as a propaganda tool.
-- here you have a young American.
From Riverside California who has been win al-Qaeda roughly four about a dozen years -- -- And he's exactly what they want to reach out and speak to all the disaffected.
Youth that are out there we need to get this guy.

Reports of his death from predator attacks.
Drone attacks and they've all proven to be false so this is not that it is this latest report from the Pakistani authorities.
It it hasn't been confirmed yet certainly not by us and we're we're skeptical -- I will say about it.
But it's important because it shows something else it shows the the renewed and that he energized effort by the Pakistani authorities in this fight it.
I think that's an excellent point because the Pakistan is that they've changed their tune.
They have really care -- working in a way that they have not in the past -- and a half years the question is why.
Well that they're taking the fight certainly of of -- taking the fight to the Afghan Taliban who.
In the recent past they've been reluctant to go after now they've been they've been.
Increasingly effective against the Pakistani Taliban.
But now they're viewing the Afghan Taliban also was a serious internal threat and really at the end of the day.
I don't oversimplify it but.
But Pakistan and and any other nations can act according to its own best self preservation lies somewhere reservation in the past they now view it as dangerous to their own survival I just wanna go back to get John's message -- quickly has he talked about targeting mass -- -- transportation before.
Has he talked about consumer confidence and stifling spending and America.
Has he talked about the failed Christmas Day bomber that can bring major cities to a halt.

Into his videos in the past and he's.
He's been used as a propagandist and as a and outreach.
Mechanism by al-Qaeda because they understand he can speak to the west and so he's talked about the sub prime crisis as as -- -- -- -- -- -- yes he hasn't done these things he tries to relevant and in the past when we thought that perhaps have been killed in the attack was because.
A couple of the videos didn't seem to have his his tweaks his message.
The nuances that we became my used to expect because Saddam was there helping to drive the messages from al-Qaeda we need to get them I said it before at some point we will bite and -- thank you for that evident right got a question what answers somewhat likely -- -- you.
